Nike puts a personal trainer in your iPod

The iPod is a versatile little gadget, and while it's been used to aid people who work out before, Nike has announced a new system that really takes the gadget to the next level. The Nike iPod Sport Kit includes a sensor that goes on your shoes that calculates distance, time, speed, and calories burned during a run. It transmits this data in real time to a sensor you connect to your iPod, which then reports the stats to you via a voice over your music as you run. No need to look down at a screen or wait 'til your workout is over to see how you're doing. Once you're done, you can upload your data to your computer to see how the training is going over time. The Nike iPod Sport Kit will cost a surprisingly low $29 and be available at the end of July.
